Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Wednesday, November 9, 2016:

United States Beef Corporation (US Beef), Arby’s largest franchisee, headquartered in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is pleased to announce the Grand Opening of its newest Arby’s restaurant in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, on Tuesday, November 15th, at 10:00am, on the Southeast corner of 104th and May Avenue.

Arby’s newly constructed restaurant will occupy  2,830 square feet, with comfortable, full service seating for 56 guests, and a convenient drive thru for guests on the go, employing approximately 40 full and part-time workers.

From 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., guests will be able to spin the Arby’s prize wheel to win free food and other Arby’s branded prizes. KJ103 FM will be broadcasting live from 11:00 to 1:00pm, giving away free concert tickets, movies passes, CD’s and DVD’s. And, between 6:00pm and 7:00pm, Rumble, the Oklahoma City Thunder’s famous mascot, will be on site to greet guests and create a magical photo opportunity for you and your children.

US Beef Chief Executive Officer, John Davis, is elated to bring Arby’s to the Oklahoma City community, saying, “Building this restaurant has been a labor of love for us. Arby’s is having such resurgence right now, and its new “Inspire” design exterior and interior reflects the new image of Arby’s. When our guests in Thornton have a craving for the deli-style sandwiches only Arby’s can bring to the table, we’re happy we can now be there for them.”

On that new Arby’s “Inspire” architectural design, Davis was equally exuberant, saying “This Grand Opening is such a proud moment to showcase our newest “Inspire” design. If you’re familiar with other Arby’s, you’ll notice at first glance that this Arby’s restaurant has a fresh, new color palette, and strong geometric shapes and elements. You’ll experience from the moment you pull into our parking lot a reinvigorated Arby’s look and feel that not only reflects our brand’s 52 year brand evolution, but our commitment to being Thornton’s modern day “meatcrafter”.”

On the interior of the restaurant, Davis said, “When you walk into our dining area, you’ll experience new, authentic textures, multicolor wood materials, modern lighting, and chalkboard graphics. Quite simply, it’s a very easy, relaxed, and fun dining experience. We’re also continuing to add more variety, originality, and freshness to our sandwich menu as well, from our world famous, thinly sliced roast beef to our new lip smacking lineup of Smokehouse Brisket and Turkey sandwiches. And don’t forget the Arby’s sauce.”

Aside from focusing on form, function, and guest comfort, Arby’s new restaurant will also feature state of the art Energy Star compliant food service equipment, with extensive LED lighting technology.
